Talk about a blast from the past. And no, we don't mean that in the usual Star Trek time-traveling way (shout-out to Spock and his mastery of loopholes, though!).
A video of Tom Hardy screen testing for the 2002 film Star Trek: Nemesis has been making the rounds on the Internet lately, showing the future Dark Knight Rises villain being a different baddie early on in his career.
In the vintage clip, Hardy goes head-to-head with Patrick Stewart—who, of course, played Captain Jean-Luc Picard—on a spaceship set. The video also splices in the actual finalized scene from the film, with Hardy rocking some prosthetics to alter his usually handsome face.
